Yes. And it seems to be working just fine for me. I modiefied Lennart's
script a bit to achieve that.

Addition to my .bashrc.

if [ "$PS1" ] ; then
mkdir -m 0700 -p /cgroup/cpu/$$
echo 1 > /cgroup/cpu/$$/notify_on_release
echo $$ > /cgroup/cpu/$$/tasks
fi
I created one file /bin/rmcgroup to clean up the cgroup.

#!/bin/bash
rmdir /cgroup/cpu/$1

And did following to mount cgroup and setup empty group notification.

mount -t cgroup -o cpu none /cgroup/cpu
echo "/bin/rmcgroup" > /cgroup/cpu/release_agent
And it works fine. Upon ssh to my box, a cpu cgroup is automatically
created and upon exiting the shell, this group is automatically destroyed.

So API/interface for automatically reclaiming the cgroup once it is empty
seems to be pretty simple and works.

Thanks
Vivek
